James writes in about the sudden passing of Quincy, who worked regularly behind the prescription counter at Decatur’s downtown CVS pharmacy. According to James, Quincy died from an asthma attack this past Sunday in Augusta while visiting his mother. He continues…
He was peculiar in how genuinely positive and nice he was, and the only reason my wife and I were willing to keep filling our prescriptions there. Everyone in the pharmacy had stunned looks on their faces yesterday evening, and the person I asked about what had happened practically broke down when telling me. She commented that he was the only reason she continued working in that location. I asked her to find out from his mother whether there was some place a donation could be made in his name. She’s going to look into it.
Obviously, his day job was only one facet of his life, but probably how most people in town would have known and recognized him. Hopefully we can learn more about him as the day continues.
Deepest condolences to Quincy’s friends and family.
